The “Ego-Stroking-Machine” is used for enhancing physical well-being and confidence.

A service team ego-strokes test persons and collects data about ego-stroking experiences and - techniques while investigating modes of communication inside hierarchies.

The project consisted of survey interviews in the streets and in enterprises, complete with questionnaire and portable ego-stroking machine.

Research about the origins of the term “ego-stroking” (German: Bauchpinseln), the installation of ego-stroking-automata operated by inserting coins, and a video documentation completed the project.
